The Story Behind Bollox (The brand)

Bollox is a men’s underwear brand that began in 2013 when one of Daren's good mates unfortunately passed away from Cancer after putting up a long hard battle.


So Daren wanted to give something back. Starting with just 2 colours, he began selling at markets to raise money for men's cancer charities.


Since then over 20,000 UK men have worn a pair of Bollox boxers to support the cause.


Bollox has a vision to provide men with more knowledge about their health. A pair of Bollox boxers are your daily reminder to check your bits, as well as giving you a new fashionable look. It is important you look good at every layer.
